A great place to see the history of Volvo, Volvo Aero, Volvo Penta, Volvo buses, Volvo trucks, Volvo IT, and Volvo Industrial equipment!

 

Public transit is more reliable - taxis tend to get lost finding this area.  Taxis are also more expensive (from central station, about 300SEK).

But - public transit takes more time and runs more infrequently, so plan ahead with schedules if taking the bus.

Bus information:

Take tram 5, 6 or 10 to Eketrägatan, Hisingen. Change to bus 32 towards Volvo Torslanda (via Arendal).
Bus stop: Arendal Skans.
Follow the signs to Volvo Museum, which is situated by the sea, around 100 metres from the bus stop.

Although Volvo's are everywhere in Goteborg, not everyone knows where this place is, so it's best to know the address/contact information.  The tourist information offices in the Nordstan shopping mall (attached to Goteborg Central Station) has a flyer for the musuem with a map, tel number, address, and helpful information for bus/driving directions.

The museum is closed on Mondays and holidays, which are more frequent than holidays in the USA.  Check Swedish national holidays to make sure it will be open!

Shop in the gift store here, rather than the Volvo factory delivery center, as it has some better deals and different items not at the factory delivery center.
